Zantac Lawsuits for Cancer Risks

Apr 8, 2023

About Zantac and the Cancer Risks

Zantac, also known by its generic name Ranitidine, is a popular medication used to reduce stomach acid production. It has been widely prescribed for conditions such as heartburn, ulcers, and acid reflux. However, recent studies have raised concerns about the potential cancer risks associated with the long-term use of Zantac.

These studies have found that Zantac may contain a cancer-causing substance called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization (WHO). The presence of NDMA in Zantac has led to numerous lawsuits against the manufacturers, alleging that they failed to properly warn patients about the potential cancer risks.

Types of Cancer Linked to Zantac

The use of Zantac has been associated with an increased risk of developing various types of cancer, including:

  • Stomach Cancer: Long-term use of Zantac has been linked to an increased risk of developing stomach cancer. The constant exposure to NDMA may lead to the formation of cancerous cells in the stomach lining.
  • Colorectal Cancer: Some studies have suggested a potential link between the use of Zantac and the development of colorectal cancer. Further research is needed to fully understand this association.
  • Liver Cancer: NDMA is known to cause liver damage and has been associated with an increased risk of liver cancer. Individuals who have been taking Zantac long-term may be at a higher risk.
  • Bladder Cancer: Prolonged exposure to NDMA, which is present in Zantac, has been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. This can occur when the body metabolizes NDMA and it enters the urinary system.
